Desktop Fireplace

Sure, we’d all love the cozy warmth and glowing ambiance of a real fireplace on top of our desks but realistically speaking we’d probably burn the whole place down if we built something like that.

Basically he just bought some pieces of trim molding, cut and painted them, then glued them together to form a frame around his monitor. Then he took it one step further by adding in some red LED Christmas lights BEHIND the monitor to give it a glowing effect. Check out the glowing action below:

Looks super cozy. Love the mantle on top for displaying photos and toys. Way cool…errr hot. Hot stuff.
